A network administrator occasionally asks a technician to make sure that dust does not accumulate on devices in the network equipment closets. What is the purpose of having the technician do this job?
- Dust can cause network equipment to overheat and cause problems on the network.
- Dust increases electromagnetic interference in nearby connected cables.
- Dust can encourage insects and other pests to live in the equipment closets.
- Dust is considered a fire hazard that poses danger to personnel and equipment.
- Dust diminishes the range of wireless services.
Dust can clog the cooling vents of network devices. Network equipment is sensitive to heat and may not operate properly or could be damaged by heat build-up.
